Mount Edward ‘Morrison Vineyard’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 22-May-2013
Moderately full, deep, purple-hued ruby-red, youthful in appearance. This has a soft, voluminous nose of ripe black plum fruit lifted with violet and dark red florals and oak spice. Medium-full bodied, bright, lively dark plum, berry and cherry fruit flavours are lifted with violet florals and layers of spices and oak notes. The mouthfeel is lively and vibrant with fresh, lacy acidity and fine tannin extract providing a near sinewy palate line. The energy and acid poise underlines the fruit richness and carry through to a racy, grainy textured finish that lingers with plum and spice flavours. Vibrant and finely textured, this plummy Pinot Noir has the vitality to age 5-6+ years. Serve with firm-bodied fish and Middle Eastern fare. Clones 777 and Abel from 11-12 y.o. vines from the ‘Morrison' vineyard in Lowburn. 8 ha planted of the 12 ha total. Indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 20% whole bunch to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 14 months in approx. 20% new French oak. 280 cases made. 18.5+/20 Aug 2012 RRP $65.00
